The Greater Concord Interfaith Council invites you to attend an Interfaith Service of Hope and Remembrance in honor of the victims of the Sandy Hook massacre, and all whose lives have been cut short by violence. The Rt. Rev. A. Robert Hirschfeld, Bishop Coadjutor of the Episcopal Diocese of New Hampshire, will be one of the speakers at the service and the Council is awaiting confirmation from Governor-Elect Maggie Hassan who has also been invited to speak. The service will take place on Sunday, December 23, 2:30 p.m., at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church (Christ the King Parish), 72 South Main Street, Concord.
At this busy and hectic time of year, when our hearts are made heavy by this unimaginable sorrow, you are encouraged to make time to gather with brothers and sisters of all faiths, and none, to honor those who lost their lives, and to find comfort, healing and hope.
Please bring gifts of new toys and warm clothing which will be distributed to local service organizations providing support to children and families. There will also be a cash offering in support of Riverbend Community Mental Health, Concord.
Our minister, Rev. Michael Leuchtenberger and Director of Music Ministry Kristofer Johnson will be participating in this service.
